This is sick, sick, sick. You have to wonder though that if the average lawmaker does not think this is illegal, what kind of twisted %$#& are they into?! More often than not the people who feel "sorry" for these kind of a-holes are the kind of people that have some serious issues of their own and can "empathize" w/revolting behaviour like this.

The laws used to exist to punish this harsher - a lot of states wiped the law off the books because they considered it out dated, along with adultery and sodomy... but sadly it was a poor decision.

Hopefully they put laws on the books on ALL states against abusing poor animals like this. :(

I couldn't sign because I don't live in the US. How about rewriting the law so the penalties for bestiality are the same as those for raping another human being? After all, it's the crime that matters, not the species of the victim.

Dirty Deeds Done With Sheep should remain a comedy song, not an actual activity. Mutual Adult Consent only validates with peer intelligences, and so far that should legally and ethically limit humans to their own species. Barnyard and household animals have their own procreation to tend to, and the availability of mechanical surrogates should be enough for those who wish to legally and morally remain free of sexual crime. Abusers should be truncated.

People who do this on innocent animals are sick from the head and no animal should be allowed with them. They are a treat to animals and humans!!!! Sick, people!

Do you think the animals enjoy this? Do you think its completely different from raping a child? How would you like to be an animal and raped? Its still an issue and its not gonna stop being one cause you think its no big fricken deal.

Noted, signed, personal commented & thanks Simone for the article & option for petition. I believe as a species of living beings, we humans are the only ones who would and do choose to express our Over abundance of sexual needs with other human and non-human living species (some non- living). Yet, we call our selves Supreme beings of intelligence. I'm having difficulty seeing intelligence, wisdom, logic or just plain common sense when the subject and actions involve sex, regarding we humans. These actions and desires indicate some terrible genetic, possible environmental/nurture problems (which includes our leaders as influence) with us. I feel very sorry for those humans who are driven to harm others for sexual gratification. The pleasure of sex is short, the need appears again, the pain of the non-voluntary recipient, human or other, lasts a very long time or until death.

Lev 20:15-16 "If a man lies with a beast, he shall be put to death; and you shall kill the beast. If a woman approaches any beast and lies with it, you shall kill the woman and the beast; they shall be put to death, their blood is upon them."

John Paul, i don't eat meat and for you to say sex with an animal is ok and it does'nt harm them is disgusting. How do you know it does'nt harm the animal , after all these poor creatures that are being raped and abused are the voiceless they have no say or choice in what is happening to them. Maybe a rapist will enjoy having power over you and i guarentee when he's raping you, you won't enjoy it or say "it's ok he did'nt harm me".Do as Simone asked and go away.
